Finals are right around the corner, and what better way to prepare for them than with tutoring right here on campus.
Tyler Junior College has free tutoring located on the third floor of Rogers Student Center known as the Learning Loft.
“All it requires is to come to the loft and ask to sign up.” Said Sara Hartley, Learning Loft staff member.
The Learning Loft offers individual and walk-in tutoring available for most core subjects. For one-on-one tutoring, students will need to contact a list of tutors to schedule an appointment.
With finals approaching, they offer walk- in tutor sessions in the library, information on hours will be posted around campus soon.
“The earlier a student comes to sign up, the better chances they will have a tutor for their subject,” said Hartley.
It is a first-come, first-serve basis. Not only is free tutoring available in the Learning Loft, but students can also register to be a tutor for others.
Tutors must have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher and have made As in college-level classes.
To become a tutor, go to the Learning Loft front desk (3rd floor of Rogers Student Center) and fill out a tutor application.
The benefits of becoming a tutor include social events & activities for tutors, can set their own schedule, and have an opportunity to help others.
“Tutoring has helped me in so many ways. I passed the Astronomy final,” said Crissy McFarland who is a sophomore at TJC.
The Learning Loft is open Monday – Thursday 8 a.m. – 7:30 p.m., Friday 8a.m. – 5p.m.
“The tutoring program I believe is successful and most students come out of the program very satisfie,” Hartley said.
